The Biggest Loser’s personal trainer Michelle Bridges has found herself involved in a minor publishing battle with another health expert over a book’s title.
Bridges is releasing her fitness book this month with the title “Losing The Last 5 Kilos” which has disappointed Sydney dietician Susie Burrell who released her book last year with the name “Losing The Last 5 kgs.”
“We would never have gone ahead knowing she had the same name [as me],” Burrell said.
“It’s a small market and it leaves a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. It’s really disappointing.”
Bridges, however says that her book’s title was conceptualised in 2009 and her husband and business manager Bill Moore says they were aware of the clash.
“We did [think about changing it] but we were so far down the track with it that we figured we would run our own race,” he said.
“I don’t think anyone copied anyone – it’s just how it worked out.”
